Visit to upcoming cluster munitions clearance projects sites
In the period 23-24 July 2019, the Mine Action Centre organized visit to cluster munitions clearance projects sites for potential contractors.
The projects developed by the Mine Action Centre, and funded, through ITF Enhancing Human Security, by the Government of Serbia, the United States of America and the Republic of Korea refer to the site area of 119.344 sqm in the Municipality of Crveni Krst, City of Niš, site area of 190.359 sqm on Kopaonik, Raška Municipality, as well as the site area of 94.496 sqm, Sjenica Municipality.
Potential contractors had the opportunity to get acquainted with the specificities and complexities of these projects in the field in order to adequately examine the project tasks and develop bids for conducting cluster munitions clearance operations on these sites.
The tender procedures for the selection of contractors for the implementation of these projects, organized by ITF and with the participation of representatives of donor embassies and our Center, will be completed in the following period.
The Mine Action Center will introduce the selected contractors into the works, monitor the implementation and conduct quality control of the works and eventually issue clearance certificates for these sites in accordance with our projects and international standards.
Upon completion of unexploded cluster munitions clearance operations on these sites, the danger that cluster munitions represent for the local population and the environment will be eliminated, while at the same time safe and optimal land use will be enabled.
